In the high ground the leaves are already falling, temperatures are cool and summer is clearly coming to an end. Perhaps this gorgeous, native Brookie was an end of season special. If so, it was a great way to end a wonderful, cool, moist summer. It puts our lower streams in great shape for the beginning of our Delayed Harvest season. Fish are plentiful, access is easier and the fishing is much more forgiving to newcomers. All that said, I’ll miss the wild.
